Re: QSL Cards

I was thinking that very thing when I tossed a bunch of cards in my box the other day...looked at them once and who ever cleans my shack when I become a silent key will just toss them in the trash without a second thought..same with all those awards that are stuck in a folder

I found a book at the bookstore a while back where a hams's son took all his dad's qsls and made a memoir of his dad's ham activities using the cards as story points..its titled "Hello World!, a life of ham radio"..a very interesting and nostalgic read..

Problem is most hams toss nice cards in a box and forget about them.  Seems like  a waste, doesn't it ? BTW, read back over my email ... Sorry  I called you Garry   ... stupid typo. Garry is in Vancouver somewhere... used to be in Pt. Alberni. Jerry  n9avy

  JerryI purposely neglected to describe the cards but seeing as you wish to compare mine are matte photo on the front (full colour) and black print on the back.Barry

Geez Barry !  $65 for 150 cards ???   That isn't cheap.  I went to UX5UO Print in Ukraine and got 1000  for almost the same price. Nice cards, one sided, 2 colour and the shipping was included. Took about 2 weeks from Ukraine.  He did nice job, too  , and put a stock logo on, too ! Jerry  N9AVY

 On the subject of QSL cards I promised a couple weeks ago to supply a summary of my card activity for my 2 special event callsigns for 1st six months this year. I do ask for SASE or couple green stamps to help with printing and postage.
CF7GEMCallsign cost  $0.00card printing 150 cards $65..00contacts - 898 to end of JuneQSL card requests - 6  or 0.668% of contacts want the card
VB7150Callsign cost  $67.00card printing 150 cards $65..00contacts - 2382 to end of JuneQSL card requests - 23  or  0.965% want the card
I had initially ordered what I anticipated to be a one month supply of cards and it looks like I have more than enough for the whole year. I will let you draw your own conclusions. If you need any more info please ask.Barry
